Close your eyes and this is pretty much the real thing! And you thought you'd never be able to eat Outback's bread again! This copy cat recipe is based off of Outback Steakhouse Bushman Bread and converted to a gluten free version. I recommend eating within 1 week. I used two mini loaf pans and one regular sized loaf pan only because I don't have more minis. (you can add food coloring to get the dark color too, but I figured I'd just keep it natural and close my eyes!) Nutritional Information (including flours, etc): 123 Cal, 2.3 Fat, 1 Sat Fat, 22 Carbs, 1.8g Fiber, 7g Sugar, 3g protein. (Slightly over 2 points a slice with WW)
- 1 cup tapioca flour
- 1 cup garbanzo flour
- 1⁄2 cup cornstarch
- 1⁄2 cup brown rice flour
- 2⁄3 cup sorghum flour
- 1 tablespoon cocoa
- 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
- 2 teaspoons instant coffee
- 2 teaspoons xanthan gum
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 1⁄2 teaspoons yeast
- 2 eggs
- 1 egg white
- 1 cup warm milk (110 degrees or 45 secs in microwave)
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1⁄2 cup honey
- Whisk together dry ingredients in a medium bowl.
- Mix together the wet ingredients in a mixer, then slowly add the dry while leaving the mix on low. Then mix on high for 4 minutes.
- Grease and flour two loaf pans (I use Crisco and sweet rice flour). Using a spatula, distribute the dough between the two pans. Loosely cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm moist place for 90 minutes (I put it in a slightly warmed oven with a pan of hot water underneath). Loaves should just about double in height.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
A gluten free bread worth eating! I used unsweetened Almond milk in place of dairy milk. I too used potato starch instead of the sorghum flour and canola oil in place of butter. Popped it in my Zojirushi bread maker on quick bread and with it's 3 risings the texture was close to "regular"bread . I think next time I might try it with a bit less instant coffee though. When in the bread maker I was tempted to add more flours, because it was like cake batter not at all like "regular" breads in a nice tight ball. I was surprised how it all came together and tasted wonderful. Now I can have sandwiches again!
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! This bread is absolutely heavenly. Even better than gluten filled bread :) I am SO grateful to finally have found a gf bread I enjoy eating. I make mine in the bread machine on the rapid setting with light crust. I also only use 2 eggs, substitute soy flour for the sorghum, and add 2 tbsp of flax seed.
Wow, not only is it gluten free, but it is good! I used an ice cream scoop to portion out the dough into round mounds onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Then I use wet hands to flatten the dough before rising and baking. By slicing through them horizontally, these rounds make good buns or sandwich rounds.
